1 "You are to construct the altar of acacia wood. The altar must be square, seven and a half feet long, and seven and a half feet wide; it must be four and a half feet high. 1 "Build an altar of acacia wood, three cubits high; it is to be square, five cubits long and five cubits wide.
2 Make horns for it on its four corners; the horns are to be of one piece. Overlay it with bronze. 2 Make a horn at each of the four corners, so that the horns and the altar are of one piece, and overlay the altar with bronze.
3 Make its pots for removing ashes, and its shovels, basins, meat forks, and firepans; make all its utensils of bronze. 3 Make all its utensils of bronze--its pots to remove the ashes, and its shovels, sprinkling bowls, meat forks and firepans.
4 Construct a grate for it of bronze mesh, and make four bronze rings on the mesh at its four corners. 4 Make a grating for it, a bronze network, and make a bronze ring at each of the four corners of the network.
5 Set it below, under the altar's ledge, so that the mesh comes halfway up the altar. 5 Put it under the ledge of the altar so that it is halfway up the altar.
